Yo, Elon. RVF got your back. We can help you through this.

I want to second this.

RVF is what Elon needs. We can hook him back into his dragon energy.

1. stop the drugs.
2. stop the cheap ass women, they are draining your vital semen energy but not giving anything back.
3. call John McAfee--that's a guy who'll understand your life

Step 1 conflicts with step 3 though. . .. Banana

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
By the way, some very disturbing allegations from this unhinged, Liberal Black woman: Apparently, she considers that White people, with their disgusting "thin, not fully-human lips", are "mutant" and must have evolved from a stupid, "inbred" and forlorn tribe of cavemen out of the Caucasus. Wow. If a White person had written such similar garbage, he or she would get destroyed in the media, maybe even prosecuted.

Yeah she said he spit on her, called her nigger and tackled her or something. No one else who was present recalled this (in fact she tried to throw a glass in a woman's face and was drunk calling people "boring whites")

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
I can tell everyone here that the overall culture at Tesla is completely fucked. I'm not even sure where to start.

The behaviors and actions that are tolerated by the top levels of management would blow away the general public. Showing up late 10+ times in a span of two weeks or walking out early and not notifying anyone are almost universally tolerated and don't result in documentation, much less firing.

In the parking lot, pot smoking, meth smoking, possible heroin use, are all common and continue on a consistent basis. One guy told us he was snorting Ambien, Xanax and cocaine all mixed together during lunch breaks and wanted us to try it with him. The number of drug users in that company's factories is unbelievable, as are the number of criminals. I swear by God that there are convicted armed robbers and rapists working at Tesla right now. I know there are because they told me, I googled their names, and sure enough the persons in question were charged with and convicted of rape and armed robbery, and not in the distant past, either. Tesla must be getting some kind of kickback for each of these criminals they hire, given how many there are, some with blatant gang tattoos on visible parts of their bodies, including face tattoos.

Every time a new batch of temps came in, gang graffiti would pop up in the bathrooms and on the cars themselves. The whole line got stopped one shift while they tried to figure out who scratched "X4" into a piece of foam in a parts tray. I had to google it to figure out it means Norteños (N is the fourteenth letter of the alphabet), while almost everyone else already knew, like it was a normal thing that would come up in daily conversation.

Gangbangers, drug dealers, drug addicts, alcoholics, felons, criminals of every other lesser stripe...you get the idea. There are good workers there as well, but Tesla hires the bottom of the bottom to work in that factory and pays workers correspondingly low wages - starting pay for a production associate in Fremont is $18.50 an hour, in the bay area, one of the most expensive places in the country to live. You're not going to get anything close to quality from workers like this being paid like that.

All of the sloppy assembly and crap quality that you see and hear about on Teslas (like the bumpers that fell off two cars recently) - now you have an idea why: because there is a good chance that a significant percentage of your car was put together by someone(s) who was drunk and/or high (there is a CLOUD of marijuana smoke over the Fremont factory parking lot during the lunch break for each shift), or by a criminal of whatever variety who is on parole and is only showing up to the job so he doesn't go back to prison. We lost two people from one shift in a span of three days because they violated their parole by not showing up and were sent back to jail.

I see why companies outsource factories, given that this is the type of work force they have to deal with if the company does their production in the United States. When did Americans become a gaggle of obese, slovenly, drug-using, useless layabouts?

All he had to do was put in a small gas generator to charge and extend range and he would be the next Bill Gates. He is stubborn that is for sure.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Quote from the woman Musk has decided to share his life with:

"I blacked out the windows and did tons of amphetamines and stayed up for three weeks and didn't eat anything," she said. But now, after losing some good friends to the influence of drugs, Grimes wants the statement retracted from her Wikipedia page.

She has asked Wikipedia to take down her quotes about drug use.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
I don't want to bad talk the guy too much because I have admittedly been a fanboy in the past. I think that the world likely needs more visionaries, and Musk is an inspiration in creating companies that match his values, regardless of what your thoughts of those values may be. Instead of saying how the world should be, he is trying to make it that way. There's a lesson in there for any man that wants to make a difference in the future.

However.

Tesla is the next Enron. They are now under SEC investigation, and have lost 14% share value this week alone. The guy is absolutely unhinged and the board should remove him as CEO for the future (if there is one) of the company. The tweet that he sent out last week about taking Tesla private should be interpreted as market manipulation and fraud. I can see how much a toll the stress is taking on the dude, and I also can't believe he keeps wifeing these females up. Dude is worth 20+ bil and is still falling for skanks.

He has a cult following, that has pushed TSLA stock into the stratosphere because these people don't care about financials or fundamentals, they care about him. But, he is continually showing that he is the problem in this company. Musk should start companies and let them run, not run them.

The problem is that his companies are financially impossible without heavy government subsidy. Any business that requires a hand out should crash and burn. That's not the way of the free market.

I've ridden in model S's, they're nice, but they completely irrelevant for all but the 1%. The model 3 is still ridiculously expensive, and as other have said, as soon as the other car manufacturers put out EVs, Tesla will be a thing of the past.

I only wish I shorted the stock on the day he released that tweet. What a roller coaster ride.

Here's a good read with more details. Relevant quote:

"To help sleep when he is not working, Mr. Musk said he sometimes takes Ambien. “It is often a choice of no sleep or Ambien,” he said.

But this has worried some board members, who have noted that sometimes the drug does not put Mr. Musk to sleep but instead contributes to late-night Twitter sessions, according to a person familiar with the board’s thinking. Some board members are also aware that Mr. Musk has on occasion used recreational drugs, according to people familiar with the matter."

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Running a large public company is very difficult and few people can do it successfully. Hopefully Musk will step aside for his own health and well-being as well as for the company. I own a Model S and it's a fun car to drive. I've not had any problems with it and the acceleration always puts a smile on my face.

I had a mentor years ago that had taken his company public. He told me that it was the worst decision of his life. When his company was private he could do whatever he wanted within reason. Afterward he always felt constrained and ended up selling the company. He impressed upon me that you should go public if that's the only way for the company to grow and survive. I owned over 5% of a public traded company for a while after a deal closed and even at that small level I didn't like the restrictions. Maybe it would be best to take Tesla private, with or without Musk.

ETA: faggot cars Sidney?

Nah she just hates being black.

She voted for Donald Trump. She uses skin whitening bleach and only dates white guys who always end up dumping her. Her last boyfriend was Korean and she openly admits to hating black men. She makes good music though.

The tweets make me sad. If men like Elon didn't exist bitches like her would still be living in caves. It amazes me that she would even consider him her equal let alone look down on him. He's worth more to society than a million of her. She probably flew out to his house on his dime too.

In fairness, she specified that Musk comes from a second group who crawled out of the caves 15,000 years later than regular Caucasians.

In other words, he's descended from retarded cavemen, even by caveman standards.

It's actually a pretty sick burn.

Musk should have NEVER built a car factory in California; especially the god forsaken Bay Area of all places. There are plenty of good places in America to build a car factory (here is a list: https://www.automobilemag.com/news/the-1...ts-151801/) where $20+/hour is a livable wage and attracts good workers. Less taxes, regulation and cheaper land. Musk probably could have gotten a huge tax break by the local government as well.

He was super strapped for cash and he built a critical piece of infrastructure to his success in the most expensive place in the US to do business with insane regulations, taxes, real estate expenses, and a lot of entitled shitheads? What a bonehead move.

Tesla bought the NUMMI factory for a pittance of $42 million after GM and Toyota put $1 billion+ into it and then folded. It was already there and they snatched it for next to nothing. Tesla needed a factory as soon as possible to start Model S production in 2012.

The bay area needs to fall into the ocean. There is no way to fix it. The left has destroyed it and it is no longer part of this country.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
It's not just the bay area. Who do you think they can possibly get to work in the gigafactory, which is in the middle of nowhere in Nevada?

That's a big problem with factories. Put them where land is cheap and it's hard to find quality people to work there. Put them where land is expensive and you can't find quality people either because it's low-paid work in a high-cost-of-living area which means just another kind of dregs of society will be hanging on for dear life there.

All of the sloppy assembly and crap quality that you see and hear about on Teslas (like the bumpers that fell off two cars recently) - now you have an idea why: because there is a good chance that a significant percentage of your car was put together by someone(s) who was drunk and/or high (there is a CLOUD of marijuana smoke over the Fremont factory parking lot during the lunch break for each shift), or by a criminal of whatever variety who is on parole and is only showing up to the job so he doesn't go back to prison. We lost two people from one shift in a span of three days because they violated their parole by not showing up and were sent back to jail.

I see why companies outsource factories, given that this is the type of work force they have to deal with if the company does their production in the United States. When did Americans become a gaggle of obese, slovenly, drug-using, useless layabouts?

Appreciate the insight (not sarcasm) but please don't mix up the citizens of the United States of America with the many classy individuals who inhabit the People's Republic of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Musk should have NEVER built a car factory in California; especially the god forsaken Bay Area of all places. There are plenty of good places in America to build a car factory (here is a list: https://www.automobilemag.com/news/the-1...ts-151801/) where $20+/hour is a livable wage and attracts good workers. Less taxes, regulation and cheaper land. Musk probably could have gotten a huge tax break by the local government as well.

He was super strapped for cash and he built a critical piece of infrastructure to his success in the most expensive place in the US to do business with insane regulations, taxes, real estate expenses, and a lot of entitled shitheads? What a bonehead move.

This is true. Everyone notice how the super Blue / Liberal states are uber expensive for any sort of manufacturing operation.

Those areas at this point still remain the desirable hubs for information services & logistics ports. People in some of those fields sort of have their hands tied.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Ummm...Musk didn't build the Fremont Tesla factory. That site was the former NUMMI (New United Motor Manufacturin, Inc) automotive plant that was a joint venture between Toyota and General Motors from 1984-2010. When NUMMI closed Tesla got a last minute sweet deal. Tesla had already reached agreement with another location not in Silicon Valley but changed their mind.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Built or bought the factory is really irrelevant in this case; even if he got a deal.

If you look at the link I posted originally, you will notice a pattern by successful auto makers in the US. https://www.automobilemag.com/news/the-1...ts-151801/

Everything with the odd exception of #15 in Chicago (which still has cheap land) is in a particularly type of location.

Musk went against the grain big time and is paying the price now.

She's probably on to something about him being on the spectrum, but at the end of the day he's still far more successful than she is, and has already made a greater contribution towards humanity than she will.

This bitch is not only crazy, but very clearly jealous.

Maybe not bang but definitely get head from. She has a big wide mouth that probably gets a lot of use.

To my knowledge, most of the obama era subsidies on Tesla cars are no longer out there.

In addition, the company has sucked up massive amounts of investment dollars but they still haven’t turned a profit. The vehicle suffers from several serious flaws.
1. They’re expensive to produce and purchase.
2. When they shit the bed, they do it big time.
3. When Tesla decides a model is obsolete, they essentially end all factory support for it. Of course the dealers want no part either.
4. 130-160 miles is still their range between charging and most places still don’t have the infrastructure to recharge them.
5. Even their new “entry” level model 3 is expensive, and Compared to a comparable gas vehicle, the difference is well over $10K. It would take years to recoup the extra price in fuel savings, and that assumes your electricity for charging is free, and that a Tesla can stay in service for over a decade(which is largely unknown at this point.)
6. Finally, every carmaker out there is working 24/7 to develop their own electric vehicles. Once they get it figured out, Tesla has no chance.

Most of his projects past Paypal were based on massive subsidies.

And even with Paypal - that company is likely highly government coordinated, so not everyone is allowed to get in.

But him being on the "Down Spectrum" - hehe - he is highly intelligent, as for Down Spectrum - Azelea Banks is closer to it if there were such a thing.

As for hm - he is just a typical Gamma male trying to Alpha up. It's obviously not working fully, but of course that is too fake for ghetto slags who are used to the real deal.

He probably thought that he is going to get edgy and bang a singer now. My guess is that he is just a Beta in a candy store: "I wanna bang her, oh and her, and her...." Due to his money and fame then he can even make it happen.... should stay off the coke for a while.
